Manchester City are reportedly keen to strike a deal with Leicester City for the transfer of left-back Ben Chilwell next summer.

Manchester City will reportedly look to strike a deal with Leicester City for the transfer of left-back Ben Chilwell next summer.

The 22-year-old made 36 appearances for Leicester in the Premier League last season and has cemented himself as Gareth Southgate's first-choice option for England.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, is keen to invest in the left-back area amid growing frustrations over Benjamin Mendy, whose availability has been sporadic since joining the club in 2017.

According to 90min, the Premier League champions have pinpointed Chilwell as their ideal target once the summer window opens in June.

Mendy has missed City's last two league games, with Guardiola picking Angelino instead amid concerns over the Frenchman's attitude.

The Premier League champions are set to face competition for Chilwell from Chelsea, who are reportedly willing to shell out £70m for the player.
